Strive Center for Autism - September 17, 2021
Hiring in Burton
Our temporary transfer, Megan, has had a great week getting to know the kids and settling in. Thank you so much for making her feel welcome!
Policy Reminder - Extra change of clothes
With the change in seasons, we will look through the clothes at the centers now, and send home anything that's not warm enough for fall, or looks like it may be too small.
We realize that two changes of clothes may seem like a lot, but we want your child to remain comfortable and clean, no matter the situation.
When clothes are soiled, we will send them home in a plastic bag, and we request that you provide a replacement on your child's next therapy day. If you're unsure what clothes we have for your child, feel free to ask - and parents are welcome to come in the building to see what we have. You can ask to check on your child's clothing when you come in for an observation, or any day.
Today, we'd like to highlight two books, one for adults and one to share with children.
For adults, Let Me Hear Your Voice by Catherine Maurice is a novel written from a mother's point of view. It tells the family's story from a diagnosis of Autism for their daughter, through a variety of treatments, and finally improvement for their daughter.
For children, A Friend Like Simon by Kate Gaynor is another simple and short book written about a classmate with Autism. In this case, the child with Autism tends to echo speech he hears, and his classmate learns how to befriend him.
We'll share two more books next week, but feel free to ask your BCBA anytime for more recommendations.
